In October 1974, eighteen-year-old Karen Solomon began what would become an eight-month journey. Along with her companion, Dave, their silver flutes, backpacks, tent, sleeping bags, and a stove, they flew from Montreal to Munich, the first stop on an odyssey that would take them through Germany, Austria, Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Nepal. Taken from the pages of her original journals and letters written home to family and friends, and enriched by over 150 original color photos, Karen highlights her exciting adventures and experiences with people, food, cultures, and customs in an accounting to rival National Geographic. This book is the raw, emotional portrayal of a young woman coming of age during a time when the world was a simpler and safer place.
